Namibia seeks PPP consultants

The Namibian government has issued a request for expressions of interest for consultants to provide PPP training and scoping services.

The Ministry of Finance is seeking advisors to develop three training modules on PPPs for public authorities and the private sector “to a lesser extent,” followed by the identification of bankable PPPs.

Based in the capital Windhoek, the winner will train members of staff at the PPP unit and other relevant agencies in project selection and feasibility, structuring, procurement management and performance monitoring.

Advisors will them move on to assess about 40 potential PPP projects and identify five bankable deals which could be delivered in the next five years .

The 10-month assignment, starting in 2019, will be funded by the French Development Agency, which recently signed a grant agreement with the Namibian government to promote the adoption of the PPP model.

Consultants have until 6 December to express interest.
